Film: "Climate of Doubt"
Ocean Beach Green Center
Thursday, August 13, 7 p.m.

This month's film is "Climate of Doubt," a 2012 PBS documentary that investigates groups that changed the debate on climate and redefined the politics of global warming. In 2008 climate change was a hot issue and politicians from both sides seemed poised to act. By 2012 public opinion on the climate  issue had cooled considerably. Most politicians either ignored it or proclaimed their skepticism. What was behind this massive reversal? After the film we will have updates on issues and events leading up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris this November. The Ocean Beach Green Center is located at 4843 B Voltaire Street, San Diego, CA 92107, one block west of People's.  For more information, call (619) 225-1083. Free of Charge.
